this morning. it's a big development in the fight against syria and a new level of u.s. involvement. we just learned within the past few hours the defense secretary leon panetta signed an order sending two patriot missile batteries to turkey. that's to assist that nation in defending against any pollible military action by syria. this move was expected as the civil war in syria destabilizes the assad regime with each passing day. in addition to this, 400 u.s. troops are going to turkey. they will be deployed to operate the missile batteries. cnn's nick payton walsh has the development. >> reporter: good morning. 400 personnel will be accompanying the batteries. let me give you history. over the past two months, we saw sporadic exchanges of fire across the border. syrian military firing into turkey causing often destruction and death. turkey often responding. that brought about this request to nato for patriot missile batteries. they're supposed to be there. this particular type better at taking out missiles in the sky rather than taking down aircraft. but this move part of a nato response. a

"the fox report's" correspondent jonathan hunt live in our new york city newsroom now. jonathan, this change of tone from the hutions seems to be very significant. >> yeah it, certainly is. because russia remember has been president bashar assad's greatest ally and protecter. if they are changing their tone now, accepting that the rebels are getting closer and closer to assad's power center in damascus through the violence that we have seen intensifying over the last couple of weeks, it signifies that the russians are realizing that their greatest friend in the middle east is about to be out of power and they better pretty quickly start making some new friends among the rebel opposition. officials say they are simply pleased to see the russians finally facing up to reality, listen. >> we agree that assad will not be a part of syrians future. we have noted as the media has the progress that the opposition has been

whether it's with the chinese or the russians or whether it's on syria or whether it's on the israeli/palestinian peace process. presidential freedom of action has narrowed to a degree that it is very difficult for america to assert itself. i think it's really a scandalous example of this growing kind of -- well, not growing -- but of this on the horizon with the u.n. vote. the united states' founding member, the key player in founding the u.n., we were heavily engaged, right or wrong, in trying to prevent the vote on the palestinian quasi-membership in the u.n. we opposed it. we and the israelis. 188 countries voted. how many voted with us? >> nine? >> eight. that tells you something. that's a perfect you've writte foreign policy, an article on foreign policy, talking about how the president seizes the initiative back. how does he do it in this case where obviously he believes, susan rice said she believed, that this was actually a step back for peace having this vote for the palestinians? >> well, first of all, that's a question of judgment whether they really believed it or not, b
